The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
We’ve got a lot to share with you in this week’s edition of eNews, including an action you can take to protect our wild horses and burros on Capitol Hill, an invitation to join an exciting wild horse photography workshop, and a special highlight of our Utah Conservation Manager, Tandin Chapman!
Read on to learn more!
The roundups only began a month ago and yet, they have already resulted in thousands of mustangs being removed from public lands and dozens of deaths. But we have the power to change this. Congress Members Dina Titus (D-NV), David Schweikert (R-AZ) and Steve Cohen have introduced the Wild Horses and Burros Protect Act (H.R. 3656) to ban the use of helicopters in wild horse management! Please contact your member of Congress right now and urge them to support this critical piece of legislation.
Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature as you capture stunning photographs of over 200 wild mustangs and burros running free on a picturesque landscape of long valleys, rolling hills, and gray pines at Montgomery Creek Ranch (MCR) in Elk Creek, California. Guided by MCR Founder, Ellie Phipps Price, and led by renowned photographer, Tara Arrowood, this three-day workshop promises to be an unforgettable experience. Space is limited, reserve your spot TODAY!

Tandin Chapman was working as a civil engineer in Salt Lake City when he got the bug. It was October 2020, and he had just seen wild horses for the very first time: a band of mustangs from the Onaqui Mountain Herd in the west desert of Utah. Now, Tandin is AWHC’s Utah Conservation Manager, documenting and darting herds, progressing conservation efforts across the state, and working with the BLM, other field specialists, ranchers and private landowners in wild horse areas. Learn more about his work, and the incredible experience of tracking one of the West’s most elusive wild horse herds.
Thanks for reading. And thank you for continuing to stand up for our cherished wild horses and burros!
